Also, Suzuki's contract details are updated (thanks to Mike, again).
Soon, I'll start projecting rosters a little bit more.

Didn't add anything about Albers' transfer fee (heard around $500k), and will wait to hear something more definitive.

There are few changes to the payroll, with more confirmed amounts and projected arbitration seasons for those heading that direction after the season.
A lot of minor leagues have been moved around. These aren't necessarily projections - because that would be impossible - but a guess of who's competing for spots on certain teams.
All of the foreign guys who aren't playing full-season ball now have their home country listed. That's mostly so I could keep Zazueta (Mexican) straight from Zoquiel (Dominican).
The 2014 IFA signings are included. Everyone eligible to play in the DSL are on that roster. I anticipate 8-12 guys will move from the DSL in 13 to the GCL in 14, so I've noted that too.
The first round of cuts is expected tomorrow morning, so there will be more updates at that time.

That remains in line with what was said about Nathan's buyout ("it was on last year's books"), but is different than how I understood them to work. I'll have to retrain my thinking.
I'm still at a loss for why they are explained the way they are in the CBA, but for now, I'm going to believe the guy that actually negotiates the contracts with the players and their reps. No one knows this stuff better than him.
My apologies for misinforming you. But I blame Phil Miller (for asking RA) and Seth (for talking to Phil).

One crazy factoid: If you look at the projected starters (position players) at FM and CR, you'll notice that Fort Myers is younger at almost every position.
C - Turner younger than Garver
1B - Hicks younger than Haar
2B - Polanco younger than Vavra
SS - Goodrum younger than Walker (though Vielma is there now)
3B - Harrison younger than Christensen
OF - Of the projected six (Williams/Walker/Kepler and Larson/Granite/Pineda), Pineda is the oldest. Kepler is the 2nd youngest (Larson youngest).
